In development for several years, the spin-off of the cult sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” will finally see the light of day on the Hulu platform with Hilary Duff in the lead role.
Announced, canceled, resurrected… It is an understatement to say that the spin-off of the cult sitcom How I Met Your Mother has seen many twists and turns since its start in 2014. Then titled How I Met Your Dad, the project carried at the time by Greta Gerwig (The Daughters of Doctor March) had finally been rejected by the CBS channel.
After several attempts to complete this spin-off, it is finally Hulu which will host the series (renamed How I Met Your Father) with Hilary Duff in the lead role; the writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger – co-showrunners of This is Us – will be the creators and producers, while ten episodes have been ordered by the American platform without even going through the pilot box.
How I Met Your Father will follow the story of a mother who tells her children of the meeting with their father. If the spin-off will take the concept of the original series identically, it is not yet confirmed whether links will be established between the two shows. Thus, cameos of the performers of How I Met Your Mother remain uncertain at this stage.
Coming soon to the Hulu platform in the United States, the series How I Met Your Father does not yet have a French broadcaster.
